HELP -Moldy walker PIOG *edit*

Someone posted this walker for $10 on my facebook. Well, I picked it up today and I noticed it was a little dirty but didn't notice until I was home that there is some mold on the back of the seat and a little on the seat. I put stain remover all over it and washed it on hot. Then re washed it with about 2 cups of bleach. I haven't got the chance to look at it yet but is it even worth my effort or is it just garbage? The rest of it is in perfect and workingcondition.

eta The seat is removable/washable, theres no mold on the frame.

*edit* it came out of the washer looking brand new!

I was wondering the same thing, I wonder where I'd look for something like that.

I'm really not sure. I never used walkers at all.

I t's worth it.  Bleach will kill just about anything.  Also buy a good disinfectant.

I think the bouncers are better than the walkers. Some babies have been injured in walkers :(

We also have a bouncer. And an exersaucer. And a door jumper. And a Bumbo. And a swing.
Babies have been injured in each of those.
Any advice on the mold?

No. I need advice too. I have a high chair that's been in my basement for a few years that I'd like to use, but I think it might have some mold on it.
